CANBus Integration


Modern vehicles use a CAN Bus to transfer information between the various electronic vehicle systems. This communication network can provide a wide range data that can be used to reduce running costs, improve driver safety, streamline maintenance processes and support environmental responsibility.

Ctrack’s CANTouch is a warranty-friendly solution that connects into the CAN Bus system to remotely access added understanding into the performance and usage of a vehicle.


• Clips over CAN High & Low wires reading the data through the  insulation
• Detailed vehicle & fleet reporting via Ctrack’s vehicle tracking solutions
• Captures trip MPG, average MPG, RPM and odometer reading              

• Gain added operational insight
• Reduce costs and boost fleet performance
• Achieve fuel savings
• Reduce vehicle emissions                          

CANTouch is manufactured in-house and enables fleet operators to extract CAN Bus data from HGVs, vans and cars without the risk of invalidating the manufacturer’s warranties. Unlike other systems in the marketplace, this innovative tool offers a cost effective solution with total peace of mind to gain valuable insight into fuel consumption and driver behaviour.

CANTouch is able to capture the data without breaking the rubber sleeve on the ECU cable or requiring any soldering that can invalidate a manufacturer’s warranty. Furthermore, the solution does not need to access a FMS (Fleet Management Standard) Gateway that are currently only available on a small percentage of commercial vehicles and can cost as much as £1,200 to retrofit.

Access to CAN Bus data enables fleet operators to report on a wide range of information including fuel consumption (MPG), revolutions per minute (RPM), odometer reading (ODO), throttle position, engine load/torque, fuel levels and engine temperature. This means you can effectively identify areas of improvement within their vehicle operation to drive down overheads and minimise environmental impact.

"We have been using the Ctrack's CAN Bus solution as part of our driver performance strategy that is designed to optimise our fleet operation and achieve responsible driving styles. We had previously collated key data such as fuel usage and MPG manually, but the CAN Bus integration now provides us with an effective means to verify this information as well as the ability to access live data regarding individual vehicle performance.
